After his controversial remarks about The Dark Knight Rises earlier this week, Rush Limbaugh attended an early press screening of the film today, and left the theater a self-proclaimed “bleeding heart liberal.”
On his radio show, Limbaugh claimed the TDKR villain, Bane, was a construction of liberal Hollywood to turn people against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who founded the equity firm, Bain Capital.
“As it turns out, I was right,” Limbaugh said on today’s show, which is now broadcast from NPRjust after Cooking with Kale.
“When I saw how sadistic and wrathful Bane was, I suddenly realized the capitalist evils Mitt Romney committed as founder of Bain Capital. The parallels are uncanny.”
Limbaugh moved his radio studio from Palm Beach to San Franciso, where he now resides in a co-op in The Castro, the city’s gay district. “It was the only place I felt comfortable walking around in my Robin costume,” he explained.
“I just bought a black Prius!” the revived host announced on his show today. “I put a Batmansticker on the back, right next to my Obama 2012 one. Barack will swoop down like the Dark Knight and rid this country of the corporate evils represented by Bain Capitol!”
